That unit should spray both oil base and water based poly or varnish. Oil base dries to a harder finish and is generally more durable

If you're going to spray, I would be leaning toward lacquer over varnish.

I use Sherwin Williams Sherwood HiBild precat lacquer, medium rub. (Somewhat between semigloss and matte)
